Becal & Campeche from Mérida, Yucatán

The name of BÉCAL is possibly the Castilianization of the Mayan word BEL-KAH, that is to say "Path that leads to the people". However, there is another version that defends the origin of Bécal from the word BEL-HA, which in Spanish means "Way of water", since according to comments from the old settlers, there was a stream of water that crossed the center of the town, -in what is currently the subsoil of the Municipal Palace-, being stored in a small cenote.

As time went on, the water mantle was reduced until it completely disappeared, then, the name of the village becomes BEL-CAN, "Camino de culebras".

When the Spaniards arrived in these Mayan lands, they changed the phonetic and prosodic sense of many populations, which is why BEL-CAN is transformed into Bécal, the name by which it is known today.
